UEFA removes VAR from European match after controversial penalty for PSG involving Kylian Mbappé

The Controversial Penalty that Got PSG VAR Tomasz Kwiatkowski Removed

UEFA Takes Action After Newcastle vs Paris Saint-Germain Incident

The UEFA has intervened and decided to sideline VAR Tomasz Kwiatkowski after the controversial penalty awarded to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League match against Newcastle United. British media outlets such as The Guardian and The Telegraph report that the European football governing body wants to keep Kwiatkowski out of the spotlight following his questionable decision to call his compatriot and referee Szymon Marciniak to the screen for a handball by Newcastle’s Tino Livramento. The penalty was given after consultation between the two Polish officials, resulting in Kylian Mbappé’s 98th-minute equalizer.

Newcastle United’s Reaction and PSG’s Position in the Group

Kwiatkowski is said to have insisted on the penalty, which sparked anger in England. Newcastle legend Alan Shearer strongly criticized the decision, stating, “Do me a fucking favor, man. What a load of shit.” The late goal by Mbappé has placed PSG in the second spot in the group standings, while Newcastle is at risk of elimination. Eddie Howe’s team now needs to win against AC Milan, while PSG should drop points against the already qualified Borussia Dortmund.
